637 GB of (free) Classic Jazz (1921-1991)

 

Want to hear what Billie Holiday sounded like when she just started out? Ooo, are you in for a treat. There’s a bit Ms. Holiday’s tough history before the music starts. Have a listen.

There’s way more music and history in this archive, but this is a great place to start. You can download or stream any of these at the Niven Jazz Collection on the Internet Archive (you know, the good peeps responsible for The Wayback Machine).
